Amber Guyger, a former Dallas Police officer, was convicted of murder today for killing her neighbor. Her conviction breathes hope into the public by showing that white police officers don't always get away with murdering unarmed black people. In this case she was not even on duty and tried to convince a jury that she thought her neighbor was in her apartment when she went into his apartment and shot him.

The victim, Botham Jean, was eating a bowl of ice cream when he was gunned down, so even if he had been in her apartment deadly force would not have been necessary. I mean a burglar eating ice cream is definitely an unwelcome surprise but I can't picture a reasonable person pulling a gun, saying "put your spoon on the floor" and then shooting him. This looks like someone that thought she could get away with killing someone she didn't like just because as a police officer she knew the law and how investigations work.

She will most likely spend the rest of her life in prison. As an ex-cop she will most likely get beat up or worse at least once even though she will have to be in protective custody. That is because even PC cases have a hierarchy where ex-cops are at the bottom with child molesters. She will probably have to pay rent to a gang to protect her long term to avoid spending the rest of her life in solitary confinement.

10/2/2019 - She was just sentenced to 10 years. That is either a slap on the wrist for a convicted murderer or a death sentence for an ex-cop going to prison. 10 years is a long time for someone like her to survive in prison. She will be marked everywhere she goes so she will probably spend a lot of that time in protective custody. Protective custody inmates usually spend a lot of time in the hole until they they are sent to a PC yard if they are lucky. Even then she might run into someone that she put in there.
